Adult Adoptions 101

In the state of New York, a person may choose to adopt someone over the age of 18 in order to grant them the same legal treatment a biological child would receive. Adult adoption may take place for a variety of reasons, like securing an inheritance, locking in legal rights, or acknowledging an existing parent-child relationship. The process can be exceedingly difficult, especially if the nature of the adoptive relationship comes under scrutiny, or filing a petition becomes problematic. If you are considering an adult adoption, find out everything you need to know about the process, the reasons, and the legal requirements.

Same-Sex Marriage Adoptions in New York

For families who cannot have children on their own, adoption is an option to help individuals start their family. In many cases, however, the adoption process is often long and stressful, even for the perfect couple. What happens when partners in a same-sex marriage want to adopt? What rights do they have and are there any restrictions? In New York, there are specific laws outlining the rights of same-sex couples and adoption.

They offer advice in tough times, provide help with school, attend recitals and sports events, and everything else a birth parent does.
